The NOTCam calibration unit for spectroscopy is still only a temporary solution with arc and halogen lamps mounted on the inside of the telescope baffle lid, completely manually controlled. We are currently looking at getting the operation of the calibration under computer control, which will also allow to get the status in the FITS header keywords.

Still a post-processing procedure providing quick-look reduction of spectroscopic data needs to be defined and implemented.
